Fig. 13. (A) Sagittal section through the OB of barfin flounder. sGnRH-ir cell bodies are observed in the ventromedial OB (arrowhead on the left) and the TN (arrowhead on the right). Double arrowhead indicates sGnRH-ir fibers. (B) Sagittal section through the MT of barfin flounder. cGnRH-II-ir cell bodies (arrowheads) and fibers (double arrowhead) are observed. (C) Sagittal section through the POA of barfin flounder. sbGnRH-ir cell bodies (arrowheads) and fibers (double arrowhead) are observed. (D) Sagittal section through the POA of barfin flounder. Bundles (one on each side of the brain) of sbGnRH-ir fibers (double arrowheads) arise from the POA area and run toward the pituitary. (E) Sagittal section through the pituitary of barfin flounder. sbGnRH-ir fibers are observed in the proximal pars distalis of the pituitary. The bars indicate 50 μm.
